City Presents Balanced Budget for 2009
Absorbs Large Increases in Fuel Costs

(EVANSVILLE, IN)- Like its residents, the City of Evansville is feeling the effects of dramatically increased fuel, utility and health insurance costs. Utility and fuel costs alone (excluding water and sewer) are projected to rise by more than $1 million in 2009. Still Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel will present a balanced budget to City Council for the fifth year in a row.

“To offset increased costs in 2009, we have cut department operational budget requests by $1 million and capital expenditure requests by $6 million,” said Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel. “Although other cities have begun laying off employees and cutting programs, Evansville is able to continue providing expected services through increased efficiencies. We are working leaner and smarter as we continue to prepare for the tough decisions to be made in 2010 due to expected circuit breaker losses of $3.1 million.”

The sewer operating fund experienced the largest increase overall of $4.3 million and the waterworks general fund increased by $4.1 million, both largely due to capital projects. The General Fund increased $2.7 million due to increases in health insurance, liability insurance, fuel and utilities. Health insurance claims alone are expected to increase 10% or $1.4 million. All full time city employees will be receiving a pay raise of $500 in 2009.

Before the city can finalize its budget for 2009, it must receive additional information from the state. The City is waiting for details about expected revenues from property tax levies and income tax revenues. The state has also failed to provide guidance on how much of the police and fire pension it will be taking over as a result of HEA 1001.
